Description of the flag

On March 10, an article ( http://www.army.lk/detailed.php?NewsId=1946) on the official Sri Lankan Sri Lankan army official website shows a picture ( http://www.army.lk/html/images/image/News%20Features/meeting.jpg) with the General Sir John Kotelawala Defence University (KDU) flag. The color of the flag is unknown to me, as well as the lettering showing the name of the University. The coat of arms of the institution ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:KDA_crest.JPG) is shown in the middle of the flag.

General Sir John Kotelawala Defence University (KDU) located at Kandawala, Ratmalana, Colombo, is a joint services academy where cadets of the three wings Sri Lanka Army, Sri Lanka Navy and Sri Lanka Air Force are trained before they go for their pre-commission training to their academies. Formerly The General Sir John Kotelawala Defence Academy, it was renamed as a university by an amendment bill passed in Parliament on October 11, 2007. It was established in 1980 and is named after General Sir John Lionel Kotelawala, 3rd Prime Minister of Ceylon.
